Abstract: 
Wild-grown Ganoderma lucidum (G. lucidum), a traditional Chinese herbal medicine, is highly cherished
and expensive for its medicinal efficiency. This study targets the development of an accurate
and effective analytical method to distinguish wild-grown G. lucidum from cultivated ones,
which are of essential importance for the quality assurance and estimation of its medicinal value.
Furthermore, different parts of G. lucidum have been studied to examine the differences between
wild-grown and cultivated ones. Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) diffuse reflectance spectroscopy
combined with the appropriate chemometric method has been proven to be a rapid and powerful
tool for discrimination of wild-grown and cultivated G. lucidum with classification accuracy
of 98%. The informative spectral absorption bands for discrimination emphasized by the linear
diagnostic rule have provided quantitative interpretations of the chemical constituents of wildgrown
G. lucidum regarding its anticancer effects.
